My great-great-grandfather, James Richmond MOORE, was born 1820 in South Carolina; died 29 Oct 1895 in Berry, AL; buried Pleasant Hill Methodist Cemetery.  He enlisted as a private in Palmers Company, Alabama State Reserves, CSA, 15 Jun 1864 at Fayette Court House (now Fayette).  The document below indicates that he was "wounded in left arm" 2 May 1865 at Selma, AL.  Thanks to June Moore Smith and Eddie Smith for helping me with this research.
